Gordon is the first tropical system to impact Northwest Florida since hurricane season began June 1.
Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant, Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards and Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey declared emergencies. "Sometimes it starts pushing not only water across but debris, logs and things of that nature, which makes it very treacherous to get across", said Jeff Collier, mayor of Dauphin Island, Ala.
Gordon was not the only storm being watched by forecasters. It will be quieter the farther inland you live. In this scenario, the storm could be forced west and move toward the eastern US coast.
